But what exactly is a dried bouquet?
Dried flowers are flowers that are dried and thus preserved. This method of preservation is very old and has been used for centuries. The flowers are dried either in the sun or in a special drying cabinet. Most dried flowers are annual flowers, as they are the most suitable for drying. However, there are also some biennial and perennial flowers that can be dried.
How are dried flowers made?
The drying of flowers is a very complex process. First, the flowers are dried in a special drying cabinet. In this drying cabinet, the air is heated to a certain temperature. The flower must then remain in this drying cabinet for several days until it is completely dry.
After the flower is completely dried, it is placed in a special container and sealed. This container must then be stored in a cool, dry place for several weeks. After this time, the flower should be completely dry and ready to sell or use in an arrangement.
Dried flowers are a great alternative to fresh flowers because they last much longer
